Fortran 77 compiler on 12.04 LTS

view story

http://askubuntu.com – I have just installed 12.04 LTS on my laptop and I'm kinda new in this. I am required to write some program in Fortran 77 and I need a Fortran 77 compiler. I have tried installing g77 as described in the Ubuntu website but was unable to do so. I have typed in the following in terminal: sudo apt-get install g77 and get the following: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package g77 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another (HowTos)
